What happens when medical or technical immortality is possible, /lit/? Will it invalidate writings on the impermanence of life?
>>
I can only imagine you saying this to a girl you've known for a month and are hoping to sleep with. You're a moron

No: all things will eventually come to an end. In time, even the atoms which compose us will decay into electrons.

>>7628936
How about an actually interesting question then anon

How do you think writing perspectives will change when death is no longer such a short-term obstacle?
>>
>>7628947
Ya know, I apologize. I misread immortality as immorality.
I don't think it is much of a problem though.

>>7628963
You thought he was asking what happens when medical or technical immorality is possible? What?
>>
>>7628963
>scientific immorality
I giggled.

Thanks though anon. The inevitability of the end constantly plagues me whenever i stop to think. I've stopped going to movies because every second i watch i can feel the end of existence coming closer. What do i read to help me come to peace with this?

Help

Do twenty pushups/situps/burpees, talk to a friend, feel lifted.
>>
>>7628931
surely it makes it all the more special?

I like to think that in the future we can determine exactly when and where the next stages of our lives begin and end. So in an instant, we can become a Monarch butterfly, and then return again to our state of being.

even if we get rid of cancer and aging or even hunger we will still have accidents. barring that, eventually all the stars will die, unless some force from outside our universe acts on them like in book of the new sun.
